    Charles Barron says he'd back black Brooklyn

    Brookly City Councilman - Charles Barron

    Brooklyn City Councilman Charles Barron vowed yesterday he'd take care of African-Americans - "unapologetically" - if he were elected borough president.

    "Am I going to be a borough president for all the people? Absolutely," the former Black Panther said. "But I'm letting y'all know now, I'm taking care of black folk. Unapologetically."

    Barron stood shoulder-to-shoulder with the Rev. Al Sharpton and retired NYPD Sgt. Noel Leader, a co-founder of 100 Blacks in Law Enforcement Who Care, as he announced his bid for beep to supporters on the steps of Brooklyn Borough Hall.

    Barron - who represents Brownsville and East New York - said he wanted to abolish mayoral control of schools, maintain affordable housing and improve health care accessibility.

    I live in Brooklyn

    I am not into a lot of hype and rhetoric, Abubadika Sonny Carson's mother was killed by a crack head so he spear headed an organization called black men against crack, so how for the love of our ancestors are you gonna name astreet after him if jacks are still clocked on that street day and night?
    Thats kinda like someone opening an Elijah muhammed liqour store, or a Queen Afua Rib joint.
    And I will say this if you want to know the truth about brother Barron come on out here to the Pink houses or the Cypress projects, in East new York, or out there on the shopping area of Pitkin Avenue on a Saturday afternoon, or over by Mother Gaston Avenue in Brownsville or Belmont market and ask brohter and sister in the supermarkets and barber shops, and beauty parlors how they feel about barron and wether or not he has improved conditions since he has been in office.:qqb008:

    My Wife is from Brooklyn, my daughter works in Brooklyn


    I trust their perspective more than anyone in a supermarket or barbershop, or, for that matter, someone over the internet who I don't know.

    That really says alot about.......

    ......... ones concept of democracy,
    that one would put the opinion of friends and family over the actual tens of thousand constituents, living in his councilmatic district.


    there is a term for that kind of thinking,
    but I can't think of it at the moment

    Call it whatever you choose. I don't live there so I can't ask tens of tousands of constituents but the fact that they voted for the man says enough for me.

    but whenyu come to visit Brooklyn

    Just ask a few and see if they would re-elect him if they had a choice.
    I am not into hero worship, if someone is a skilled "mechanic" I will support her or him!
